I can't remember the last time I saw a play on stage. I think it was Gilbert & Sullivan's HMS Pinafore, and I had to go because some friends of mine wanted to. This would have been at least a decade ago.

I've also auditioned for plays, but that was a long time ago.  

Does anyone here like plays? What are some of your favorites?

Thanks in advance.

Plays or Musicals?

I go to New York often as well as Stratford in Ontario to see as much as I can.

Do I have a favorite play? Most likely that would be "The Importance of being Ernest".

My Favorite Musical is "Elisabeth"

Either/or.  Smile

I know that there's a distinction, but I'm not really a theater person per se so I sort of lump them together.

For a while I was trying to get tix to Phantom, I think it was, so that I could go with with an ex-girlfriend of mine, but that whole thing fell through.

I hear good things about the Pasadena Playhouse and I've been meaning to see if I can subscribe, if they're offering anything good.

Last play/musical I saw was "Rent." I hated it. Maybe the art form just isn't my thing, or maybe it was the story about a bunch of self-involved melodromatics. I haven't been back to the theater since, and I live around the block from it.

I saw a trailer for the movie version of Rent on the special free DVD that Best Buy was distributing a few months ago for Stealth, a movie about a super-fighter-run-amuck that I was meaning to see but ended up not seeing after reading some negative reviews of it. (The Rent piece was essentially a trailer running before/after a glorified trailer, which is basically Madison Avenue for you.)

I was so unimpressed, I decided not to see Rent just on the basis of that trailer.

On another note, The Producers seems funny, though, and I was intending to see the current movie version of it. (I've already seen the original movie version.)

My wife and I saw "Dead End" in Los Angeles a while back. One of the few dramatic stage plays I've seen. I understand it's a difficult play to mount, and therefore seldom done, but I thought it was pretty good.

For a musical, Annie is still one of my favorites. Hated The Producers.

The last thing theatrical I went to was the show "Splash" out in Las Vegas in 2004.

Last local theatre I went to was about 5 years ago to an improv show at a theatre some folks I knew in high school had.

The last play I saw I really didn't see, as I was in it. I was in a production of G.B. Shaw's "Caesar and Cleopatra" about 9 years ago.

The last musical I saw was a local production of "Jesus Christ Superstar" about 10 years ago (The only reason I went to see it was because I knew some of the cast.).

I used to enjoy going to see plays and musicals back when I was in college, mainly because with a few exceptions, most of them I saw for free. I was involved in the Drama Club at my college (I was the President one year) and they used to buy tickets or would be given tickets by other theatre companies. After the production of "Caesar and Cleopatra", I pretty much lost interest in doing and seeing plays, mainly because of the bad experience I had with that show.

That's a shame! Those must have been some very bad experiences to turn you off theater like that.
